Ow pleeez, stop wondering. That's the explanation! Triglycerides is
directly related to fasting/eating, cholesterol is not, yet it is long-term  
diet related, except in some metabolic disorders (hyperlipidemias). How long  
have you been on diet? (need not really public answer).

Well you can choose, either you'd rather have a high cholesterol and will die  
from heart attack, or you may prefer to have a low cholesterol and die from  
cancer. Express yourself, you're bound to die anyway ! :-)

Hi Keith, did that "esteemed medical source" quote THEIR sources? If so  let us  
examine them, if not disregard it. We are plagued by those daily  changing  
statistics (lies, damned lies, and statistics). For now, here we  have a  
healthy young man, who not even ever gets colds, in search of an  illness  
whatsoever. What about a good old washerwoman's knee?

Yes, but the question is, do you want to die young?
